Hello from Italy

Hi all,
I kindly ask permission to come onboard...

I am a long time boater, started many years ago with a 3,70m aluminium lake boat, sailed for a while with summer charters, jumped through several motor boats, actually owner of a Beneteau Swift Trawler 30...
cruising in the Med, West Italy, Sardinia and France Riviera

long time reader of the forum, even if never took active part of it.

ciao

ciao, ça va bien, merci

thanks for your welcome

yes, I am in Liguria, home port in Chiavari.
I picked up my actual boat in 2017 delivered in Port Frejus!

every year I spend 7-10 days in French Riviera, Nice is my favorite port, but hopping almost in every port between Menton and St Tropez...
during summer... 15/20 days between Corse and Sardinia...

cheers

Chiavari is a nice town. My boat is moored in Antibes Port Vauban.

I bet you know the place on the pic ? Between San Remo and Nice 😊

Welcome aboard from the BC south coast!
It is great to see how "International" this forum is becoming. More and more interest from Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and even a few from parts of SE Asia.
I have never been to France (yet) but I did really enjoy my time in Italy. We travelled fairly extensively when there visiting Naples, Pompeii, the Amalfi coast, Florence, Venice, Ancona, Bologna, Lucca, Spello, Siena, San Gimignano, San Marino (separate country), Pisa, and Rome (probably forgot a few places).
I hope you managed to get through this horrible pandemic relatively unscathed. Has it impacted boating like it has here in Canada? Almost no one is out.
Again, welcome.

thanks

here in Italy boating is still forbidden. some areas have recently allowed to go to the marina to make maintenance with limitation in timings and number of people. but no one can take the sea...
moreover only people living in the sea surroundings are allowed to go to marina, so most of the boat owner that comes form the inland cities cannot.

we hope something will change soon, summer is almost here

I’m very jealous of both our our members in France and Italy. Weather wise would it be possible to be a “full time cruiser” in the Med and Adriatic without a Shengen visa? Why do the loop is my though...... ;-) Pilou- great to see you back of late. I missed reading your comments with a French accent ;-)

Wifey B: Well, our plans were to spend the summer of 2021 in the Med, but looks like that may be 2022 now.
